In The Mean Time...
METAIRIE, LA – Vincent Caracci has pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges after the 21-year-old was accused of squeezing a hamster to death in a Lakeside Shopping Center pet store.
According to the arrest report, a clerk at Lakeside Pets told police that Caracci came into the store on March 27 and was acting like an idiot. He “began messing with the animals” and was “handling them rather roughly.”
When the clerk told Caracci to quick acting like a psycho and leave the animals alone, he picked up a hamster with his right hand and squeezed the animal “until it made a loud squeaking noise and stop [sic] breathing.” When she asked Caracci what in the hell did he just do, “he said nothing but stared at (her) with a mean disposition.”
Caracci was already on probation after pleading guilty to possessing synthetic marijuana in May, but his probation was revoked after he was arrested for killing the hamster. He was subsequently sentenced to six months in jail last month.
On Monday Caracci pleaded guilty to aggravated cruelty to animals and was sentenced to two years’ probation and must perform 80 hours of community service.…Continue Reading
TACOMA, WA – A former sixth-grade teacher was sentenced to six months in jail for sexually abusing a 12-year-old student for over a year, but with four months already served, will spend the remaining two months at home.
Keshia Shaw was a math and science teacher at at Tacoma’s Gray Middle School when she first started molesting one of her students in 2007. The sexual abuse continued for over a year and a half, stopping only after the boy heard a sermon about molestation and finally told his mother what was happening.
Shaw would eventually plead guilty to two counts of second-degree child rape, in exchange for a six-month sentence. Judge McCarthy delivered the sentence on Tuesday, but was reluctant. He said he’d read through the court documents and didn’t like that Shaw kinda shifted some of the blame on the victim.
However, standing before the judge, Shaw took full responsibility for her actions and Judge McCarthy ended up crediting her for the four months she’s already served, and agreed to let her go home with a monitoring device to serve out the remaining two months.…Continue Reading
Philadelphia, PA – Police have arrested a moron in Philadelphia who thought it would be hilarious to film himself threatening people with a pellet gun and then post the videos online.
Police say 21-year-old Darren Stinson, a wannabe comedian, drove around with a friend filming themselves as they pointed the black pellet gun at unsuspecting pedestrians. Stinson then posted the videos on Instagram as “funniestnphilly”.
These videos include Stinson and another jackass pointing the gun at a man salting a snowy sidewalk and demanding he put the salt in their car’s trunk, leading to the man spilling the salt on the ground. Others show Stinson pointing the gun at random pedestrians and firing the gun, laughing like idiots as people dive for cover in the snow.
But Stinson saw nothing wrong with these pranks. He is soo fucking stupid, he thought it was perfectly ok to point a gun at someone as a prank. In fact, he made this comment on one of the videos: “All of this is jokes. …Continue Reading
MULLICA TOWNSHIP, NJ — Residents of Mullica Township are rallying behind Kelly Mascio, a teacher for more than 15 years who was suspended after finding two students naked in her classroom bathroom and promptly reported it to a principal.
On Sept. 30, Mascio found two 5-year-olds — a boy and girl — inside her in-classroom bathroom together. Both were naked and told Mascio they were “having sex.” Mascio reported the incident to the principal, who then called police and the state Department of Youth and Family Services.
In response, Mascio was immediately suspended with pay even though police found no reason to pursue criminal charges against her and closed the case. Now Superintendent Brenda Harring-Marro has filed tenure charges against Mascio in an effort to have her fired permanently.
The Board of Education met Wednesday night to determine whether to certify the charges, but refused to inform the public — including about 200 people who came out to support Mascio — whether it had certified the complaint or not.
Mullica Township Education Association President Barbara Rheault said this was Mascio’s first year teaching kindergartners and that the day of the incident was a confusing one as children were moving in and out of Mascio’s classroom for MAPS benchmark testing.…Continue Reading
Homer Glen, IL – The director of public safety for Concordia University was terminated and arrested last week after a female employee at the school accused him of depositing a load of pecker spit in her shoe.
According to authorities, the female employee claimed she witnessed 38-year-old Tim Margis walk out of her office on the evening of February 10, buttoning up his pants and fastening his belt. When the woman asked Margis what he was doing in her office, he told her he was checking the room because the door had been left open.
When the woman walked into her office, she discovered a “clear liquid” inside one of her shoes.
Margis was interviewed a couple days later and reportedly admitted to having masturbated in the woman’s shoe. He failed to explain why, though. Police say there was never any sort of relationship between Margis and the victim, and there hadn’t been any previous allegations of misconduct.
Margis charged with public indecency and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors, and released on $150 bail.…Continue Reading
According to authorities, a local farmer set up video surveillance in his barn in an attempt to determine “why his cows appeared anxious,” and were not producing milk as usual. Imagine the look on his face when he viewed the recording….
Police soon learned 35-year-old Michael Jones agreed to roll tape while his buddy, 31-year-old Reid Fontaine attempted to make sweet, sweet love to several cows. Please note the word attempted — something tells me there wasn’t actual penetration. I guess them heifers just weren’t that into him.
Both were arrested on charges of misdemeanor sexual misconduct and released on appearance tickets.
Beef turns me on, too. But I kinda like to wait until it’s slaughtered, marinated, bbq’d, covered in bacon and dished up with a side of mashed potatoes and gravy. Guess I’m just weird like that….…Continue Reading
Officials claim an angered Laura Cunliffe tossed the four-month-old Mowgli in the microwave after the kitten attacked the fish, and set it to cook. She apparently misjudged the time needed to fully cook a kitty — poor Mowgli was still alive when she pulled her out.
“The kitten was in a distressed state when Miss Cunliffe took it out of the oven. She took the animals to a relative’s home,” said Brian Orsborn, prosecuter for the RSPCA. “The kitten could not get its breath and died about ninety minutes later. Miss Cunliffe made arrangements for the body of the kitten to be taken away to be buried.”
“In the 13 years I have been in the job I have never dealt with a case like this before,” said Lynsey Harris, RSPCA deputy chief inspector. “It is particularly horrendous because of the period of suffering for the kitten which would have been awful.”
Cunliffe, who’d had the kitten since it was just a few weeks old, admitted to zapping it.…Continue Reading
The toddler’s mother, Krystan Lambert, told a reporter from WMUR she was walking out of the store with her 2-year-old daughter, Sonya, and another child she was babysitting, when she felt Sonya’s hand ripped from her grasp.
“All of a sudden my daughter’s on the ground crying and this woman’s reaching over, swinging at her, trying to hit her,” Lambert said.
That woman, identified as 47-year-old Lorraine Augustine, was swingin’ and refused to let up. Lambert said the woman started circling her, taunting her, trying to get at the child. Augustine apparently removed one of the child’s pink boots and attempted to beat her with it.
“She was swinging at her while I’m picking her up, trying to shield her with my body and trying to kick and push the woman away any time she got near me,” Lambert said.…Continue Reading
KNOXVILLE, TN – A woman wanted for the attempted murder of her mother was arrested after she walked up to a news crew and admitted on camera that she tried to stab her mother to death because her mother was the antichrist and the leader of a satanic cult.
Laurie Nichols told authorities that her daughter, 31-year-old Katie Nichols, busted into her room around 3:40am Tuesday, put a sock in her mouth and told her to eat it. Nichols then tied her mom up and strangled her until she lost consciousness before stabbing her once in the chest with a small kitchen knife, once in the abdomen with a large kitchen knife, and once in the neck with a pair of scissors.
Neighbors called police after hearing Laurie’s screams, but by time they arrived Katie had fled the scene with her young daughter. Laurie was rushed to U.T. Medical Center, where she had surgery and is recovering in ICU.
A news crew went out to the apartment complex and were in the middle of interviewing a neighbor who knew the mother and daughter.…Continue Reading
SPRINGFIELD, MO - Police have arrested and charged 45-year-old Craig Wood with the abduction and murder of Hailey Owens, the 10-year-old abducted in broad daylight as she walked home from a friend’s house Tuesday afternoon.
Police were called after a couple watched a tan Ford Ranger stop near Owen as she walked down the street and heard the driver ask her for directions. Owens took a step or two toward the truck before the male driver lunged out of the truck, grabbed Owens with his left hand and threw her into the truck “like a rag doll” before fleeing the scene.
Other neighbors chased after the truck, but were unable to stop him. Luckily, the couple were able to give police a detailed description of the suspect and his vehicle, including the exact license plate number. This helped police quickly determine the truck was owned by Jim and Regina Wood, who told them the truck was driven by their son, 45-year-old Craig Wood.
When detectives arrived at Craig Wood’s home a few hours after Owens’ abduction, he drove up in the truck police were looking for and tossed a roll of duct tape in the bed of the truck as he got out.…Continue Reading
According to police, Travis Schelling thought other men were sending direct messages to his girlfriend on Facebook anytime one of her friend’s posts popped up on her feed. And every time he read one of those messages, he hit her. In addition to the hitting, police say, Schelling also violently shook the woman by her hair, ripping it out in clumps. It is believed that Schelling also sexually assaulted her.
Police say he held his girlfriend captive from about 11:30 Friday night to 3:00 Saturday morning, threatening to kill her, her family and her friends if she dared alert authorities. The woman finally convinced Schelling that she wasn’t going to tell, and he released her at about noon on Saturday.
Police said the victim had bruising on her face, arms, legs and a cut and swollen lip when she reported the incident.
Schelling has been booked on charges of kidnapping, sexual abuse, aggravated assault, threatening and intimidation.…Continue Reading
Joseph Andrew Dekenipp, 40, was taken into custody at their rendezvous spot, the Gallopin’ Goose Saloon & Grill, about three hours after his escape. Witnesses say the police arrived at the bar just minutes after the girlfriend did.
Dekenipp didn’t just wander off the property, either — police say he had to scale a 12-foot fence, shimmy through some razor wire, and scale yet another wire-topped fence in order to leave the property. And what, exactly, did you do for your significant other for VDay? He was treated for his injuries prior to being returned to the facility.
Police are now trying to figure out if Dekenipp was assisted by any other inmates.
Dekenipp was initially jailed on suspicion of vehicle theft, trafficking in stolen property, unlawful flight, theft and driving on a suspended license on January 10 — bond was set at $5,000.…Continue Reading
Wayne Bryson‘s girlfriend was apparently searching for some photos on his old cell phone, when she came across a video that showed her beloved fucking her dog. She turned the cellphone over to police and Bryson was taken into custody.
I would have to assume the girlfriend hasn’t been able to stop showering or douching since…
When questioned, Bryson failed to explain why he fucked the pooch, like any kind of explanation would suffice, but did claim that it was just that one time. He also failed to explain why he would record that shit to begin with.
In addition to being busted for bestiality, Bryson is also facing drug charges — it alleged that he was found to be in possession of marijuana.
Bryson was granted bail on the condition that he stay the hell away from any and all critters.…Continue Reading
According to police, the fight apparently began when 56-year-old Benjamin Calderon swiped said foot from the skillet James Jugo was attending to at the moment. It was apparently then that the beating commenced.
Wait…. people eat chicken feet? I’ve seen them in the meat department and shit, but I didn’t know people actually fried and consumed them. I thought that shit was used for voodoo and stuff. I can’t imagine sticking one of those things in my mouth….
Anyway, Jugo told police he beat Calderon to death with his fists, but a witness claims to have seen him swinging a wooden cutting board. At any rate, Calderon is very much dead — the autopsy revealed he suffered internal bleeding after being hit numerous times on the face, neck and elsewhere.
This, surprisingly, isn’t Jugo’s first brush with the law — he’s been arrested at least 19 times on charges that include burglary, cocaine possession, petty theft, probation violation, open container and possession of a dangerous dog.…Continue Reading
PORTLAND, OR – Four teens are looking at some serious charges after being accused of kidnapping and torturing one of their classmates.
Police say during a snowstorm on February 10, Jenna Montgomery, 15, lured 16-year-old Dustin Murrain into a shed behind a house. Murrain told police he had met Montgomery earlier that day at David Douglas High School, where they both attended school.
According to Murrain’s account, once he walked into the shed he encountered three teen boys and realized he had fallen for one of the oldest tricks in the book.
First he was struck in the head with a crowbar before being ordered to take off his shirt. Then 15-year-old Blue Kalmbach allegedly shot Murrain in the chest, groin and index finger with a BB gun. Kalmbach then carved a swastika into Murrain’s forehead with a box-cutter and forced Murrain to eat cat shit.
After having his iPod stolen, Murrain escaped the shed and fled to a nearby auto service shop for help. Police were called and Murrain was taken to OHSU Hospital for treatment.…Continue Reading
Back in 2005, 27-year-old Kayla Finley rented MONSTER-IN-LAW from Dalton Video. The then 18-year-old failed to return the video within 72 hours, even after the store sent her multiple letters.
The owner of the video store, which is now out of business, eventually got fed up and went to court. A judge issued an arrest warrant for Finley on a charge of failure to return a rented video cassette – a misdemeanor charge that I wasn’t even aware existed.
Nine years later, Finley went to police to report a crime and was arrested after officers taking her personal details noticed she had an outstanding warrant. She was put in jail overnight and released the following morning after a judge issued a $2,000 personal recognizance bond.
“It’s obvious that Pickens County has nothing better to do,” Finley told reporters.…Continue Reading
LITTLE ROCK, AR - Little Rock Police say 48-year-old Willie Noble didn’t care much about his future freedom when he walked out of his home and started shooting at a car full of teenagers who vandalized his car.
One of those bullets ended up hitting and killing 15-year-old Adrian Broadway, and now Noble is looking at a first degree murder charge.
It happened on at around 1 a.m. Saturday morning after Broadway and a group of her friends pulled up to Noble’s residence for the second time that night, and covered Noble’s car with leaves, eggs and mayo.
Noble came running out of the house armed with a gun, and opened fire on the group of teens as they drove away. Police say the group drove to a nearby gas station and called 911 after realizing Broadway had been shot in the head.
She was rushed to Arkansas Children’s Hospital where she would be pronounced dead. Aside from the driver of the vehicle suffering lacerations to his hand from broken glass, no one else in the car was injured.…Continue Reading
Wheelersburg, OH – A mother, stepfather and grandmother are in custody, accused of holding four young children prisoner in their southern Ohio home, binding them with ropes and chains, and torturing them both physically and sexually.
The Scioto County Sheriff’s department first learned about the abuse allegations on Jan. 30th, when a teacher at an online learning school said one of the girls emailed her and asked her to call 911. The victims all lived in the home together and were being home schooled via computer, authorities said.
That same computer enabled an 11-year-old girl to reach out for help via email, claiming she and her siblings were being held prisoner in their home and were being tortured. A Sheriff’s deputy, accompanied by county children’s services, went to the home and interviewed the siblings, and evidence of the alleged abuse was apparent.
“The children stated that they had been tied with ropes and chains to their beds for weeks at a time, sometimes longer (and were) only untied to do school work on the computer,” the sheriff’s department said.…Continue Reading
Anyway, police were called to the couple’s home Monday and found Ashley Marie Prenovost nekkid, bloody and drunk. It is alleged that after the boyfriend refused coitus, Prenovost went on a rampage. Police say she punched a couple of holes in the bedroom wall and smashed a picture frame, causing injuries to both of her hands.
Then, for whatever reason, Prenovost picked up the four-month-old child she shares with her boyfriend, and began carrying her around the house, yelling and screaming and bleeding all over the place. At some point during the alleged tirade, the child’s head met a dresser.…Continue Reading
According to the 56-year-old victim, when he learned the postman wasn’t delivering the aforementioned check, an agitated Kiefer snatched his pepper spray off his belt and squirted him in the eyes. This led to a wrestling match, of sorts, in the street. The mailman told police that while the two were struggling, Kiefer bit him on the leg three times.
The two were still at it when police arrived on scene. Kiefer still had a bit of fight left in him, and when officers tried to subdue him, he reportedly resisted. This earned him a pepper sprayin’.
The two were eventually pried apart and Kiefer was taken into custody. He was charged with assault and battery and resisting arrest, and was ordered held on $1,000 bond.
The mailman was treated at the scene for the bite wounds and a cut to the knee.…Continue Reading
